  • Received as a gift from Sheri and Mike. Thank you!

    Day 13 of 24 beers of Christmas 2021. Date on can of 2021-10-27.

    Pours cloudy with a pure white foam that covers. Retention is a bit slight. Minor but not much lacing.

    Aroma of pineapple, hints of lemon, light mango and sweet. Mild tropical fruit medley.

    Taste is really light no matter what the descriptors. Lemon, pineapple and sweetness. There is a light bitterness to the finish that quickly defuses.

    Light body, too light. Huge, spritzy, carbonation that tries to build the mouthfeel. Juicy to begin, gradually becoming dry.

    This is a really light bodied NEIPA. Is it a NEIPA? At two months old possibly past its prime. If you are making me an IPA, make me an IPA. Don't go shallow in the hop department. Oddly, I would have this beer again but only in the summer. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Brewed to counterbalance the decadence of the holidays, Elf Boots packs the haze and aroma of the Boots series into a Session IPA. The hop bouquet of El Dorado and Mosaic were blended to highlight the flavors of Lime Jello Molds with your Aunt Carol’s Ambrosia.
